Support Transgender Equality:
No One Should Face Discrimination Because of Who They Are

SHARE THIS VIDEO

Across most of the United States, state laws do not protect transgender Americans from discrimination in public places – or when it comes to using the restroom, something we all need to do every day.

Our new TV ad depicts the challenges transgender people face in accessing public restrooms and features a transgender woman – someone who was born with a male body, but inside always knew she was female, and who transitioned to live life every day as the woman she had always known herself to be.

It can be hard to understand what it means to be transgender, especially if you’ve never met a transgender person – and that’s why we’re proud to share this video as part of our efforts to help more people understand the lives of  transgender people.

Join us in taking a stand:

The Facts About Restrooms and Safety

Safety and privacy in restrooms is important for all of us, including people who are transgender. That’s why we already have laws in place that make it illegal to harm or harass people, or invade their privacy. Updating our nondiscrimination laws to protect transgender people doesn’t change that.
